The 2018 LAC-INFORM main fndings:

  • In general, there are no signicant changes in risk conditions for countries of the region between 2017 and 2018. The same ten countries appear in the high and very high risk categories.

  • The countries with a very high level of risk of disasters and humanitarian crises are Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras.Those in the high risk level are: Bolivia, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Venezuela (in alphabetical order).

  • In the case of the Caribbean, it should be noted that the level of reliability of the INFORM index remains low for most countries (lower in 2018* than in 2017). The main cause is the lack of information for indicators in all three dimensions of analysis.
